I'm trying to exclude 4 category's from the balance theme homepage grid.
Any snippets available?

Simply Exclude didn't work.
I've tried stopping the category by adding the // exclude posts from this category// ( the code not the words in brackets ) in the homepage loop.
Never had this problem before.

I see that. I'm trying to use the same grid that the balance theme uses.
This is my home.php code you'll see the exclude category I tried to use. https://gist.github.com/thewebattic/5723987
I did try add the function you showed above but nothing happened again.
Thanks for the help so far

Hey still no joy here.
Also noticed that when I page through from the home page pagination it go's back to the home page ??
Any more advice would be appreciatedJune 7, 2013 at 3:06 am #44483
This code has been tested on the Balance child theme and works.
Please remove this code from your home.php file
'category__not_in' => -13, // exclude posts from this category
Then paste this code at the end of your child themes functions.php file.
Code not displaying? Grab it from Github.
Please replace the 4 category i.d's in the code with the i.d's for the categories you want to exclude posts from displaying in.
This code removes all posts assigned to 4 categories from displaying on your home page if its set to display your latest posts. The code also excludes posts from those 4 categories from displaying in paginated pages linked to the home page.
Example: page 1,2,3 etc.

I added that code still no luck even tried installing the original functions.php file and home.php and the grid still shows the the category I'm trying to exclude category-13 and reloads the home page for the pagination links.
With that in mind do you think it's possible I have settings in the Dashboard area that are conflicting with the code??

Because mine is .net not .com
Which categories do you want to exclude?
June 10, 2013 at 12:47 pm #45093
Hey Brad I tried it on a top level domain no joy.
Do you know what version of wordpress the test site you got it to work on had ??? I'm just trying to eliminate wether the issue is with the grid and the latest wordpress update.

Ok For anyone having this same issue.
I found the bug. I have featured post widgets in the sidebar that seem to overide the Grid settings on the homepage. No where else but on the homepage. So if my featured posts widget selects a category the grid automaitcally takes on that cat even if I exclude it. from the grid
